The cottage is really cosy and comfortable and has lots of charm. Southwold is a lovely town and we found lots of nice walks and places to eat. I would thoroughly recommend both Southwold and Loom Cottage.

The welcome gift from Kerry and Steve came as a complete surprise and made us feel really 'special'. The information pack was comprehensive, helping us find places to enjoy coffees and excellent evening meals. The proximity to the Common and Beach proved popular with Smudge a Cocker Spaniel who enjoyed the sand and sea! We look forward with anticipation to our next visit.
